From the Safety Code for Little League
Regulations prohibit on-deck batters.
This means no player should handle a bat, even while in an enclosure,
    until it is his/her time at bat.
This applies only to Little League Majors, Minor League, Rookies, and Tee Ball.”
The umpires are instructed to allow a player when he/she comes to bat
    to take some practice swings if they ask permission so long as they are
    not purposefully trying to delay the game. A warning will be issued to
    the manager for violating the above rule and a player is subject to ejection
    if they continue to swing bats other than at the plate. If you have any
    questions regarding this rule, please contact your League’s Chief Umpire
    or any member of our District 8 Umpire Staff;
          Bruce Dinkel, Marc Guggino, or Barbara Stilwell.

The Little League Parent/Volunteer Pledge
I will teach all children to play and do their best.
I will positively support all managers, coaches and players.
I will respect the decisions of the umpires.
I will praise a good effort despite the outcome of the game.

    The Little League Pledge
I trust in God.
I love my country and will respect its laws.
I will play fair and strive to win, but win or lose
I will always do my best.

Good Morning! Well, Mother Nature has let us know that she intends to put Walt through the scheduling exercise.

SO: We did finish the Mile High, and Atrisco game yesterday. The final score was 24 - 23 with Mile High Winning.....

And then..... The game between Thunderbird, and Cibola as well as the game between Alameda and Belen were suspended due to lightning, and then rain.

So here is our plan.

The two 11:30 games will then be the continuation of the two games from last night



The 3:00 games will be the regularly scheduled games

So then Sunday at noon:
